To the…..Batmobile?

The 1955 Lincoln Futura was a concept car designed by the Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company. Hand-built by Ghia in Turin, Italy and designed by Bill Schmidt and John Najjar for $250,000. After buying the car from Ford for $1, legendary customizer George Barris made modifications and transformed the car into the Batmobile, for the 1966 TV series Batman.
